Midwifery Baby Weigh Slings

Originally made at the request of a local midwives' office, these slings are for weighing newborn babies, just like little fish!

More details

$22.60 incl. tax

Originally made at the request of the local midwives' office, these slings are now distributed across the province by Pure Midwifery and the Stevens Company (medical suppliers).  If you're already a client of either company, we encourage you to continue working with them!   If not, or if you require customization of your slings, please contact us!

These slings are 38" long, and 29" wide, with 2 sturdy metal D-rings at either end.  By request, they can be customized to not have sewn in rings, so that you can use them with a removable caribiner instead of rings and avoid the noise of clinging in the washer.  Please note that weigh scales are NOT included with the slings, and unfortunately we don't carry them (please consult the two companies above if you need one). We don't sell caribiners either, but a climbing store (or Mountain Equipment Co-op online) will sell something sturdy.

Currently the slings are available in dark cotton prints, colourful cotton batiks, natural unbleached hemp/cotton muslin, or dyed hemp/cotton muslin (55% hemp / 45% cotton).  Organic cotton prints are available in a seperate listing.  Weight of each sling varies with fabric selected.

These make an excellent gift for the midwife, or midwifery student in your life -- or get one for your own child's birth to have as a momento.

Made in Canada by ecomum. (who feels truly honoured to be so close to so many babies in their first moments in plein air!!)
